Profile

Profile

Besso has a long and distinguished pedigree that gives it a respected position in the global insurance marketplace.

With a London-based staff of just over 200, Besso is a medium-sized business that combines the traditional values of an established and trusted broker with an innovative and personal touch that differentiates it from many larger competitors. Moreover, because Besso is an independent Lloyd’s broking group, predominantly owned by the senior management team, it offers an alternative and fresh perspective.

Besso has expanded and diversified greatly over the years. Growing from a largely North American business, it now operates worldwide through nine divisions: Aviation, Energy, Marine, International, Property, Casualty, Reinsurance, Besso UK, Besso Re, and Professional and Financial Risks. Besso also provides risk transfer services for reinsurance and capital markets through a subsidiary called Optex.

Highly regarded for the quality and experience of its specialist teams, Besso works primarily with overseas brokers and intermediaries, and is particularly noted for handling complex and unusual risks. Much of the business is placed under binding authorities with Lloyd’s syndicates.

Besso’s growth has been characterised by the consistency and reliability of its face-to-face broking skills coupled with an innovative and creative approach that draws strength from the company’s independence and commitment to bespoke solutions.
